ASHES AND SNOW was an early inspiration to Calley as she envisioned The Rama Exhibition as a traveling exhibit. On his website, fine art photographer/film maker, Gregory Colbert reveals: I think of my life’s work as a celebration of all of nature, an orchestra that plays not the sounds of one musician, the music of one species, but rather an expression of all of nature’s songs.
Colbert believes that there is a shared desire for all species to participate in one universal conversation. He sees nature as the greatest storyteller of all and himself as an apprentice to nature. His works are collaborations between humans and other animals that express the shared poetic sensibilities of all species. GREGORY COLBERT
